  2. Africa Twin
    Another tyre question I/m afraid. I have been scouring threads and other forums for the answers. After this, I make up my mind. The RD03 is on army special front and Mitas C-02 rear. On the road, rear squirms and follows any imperfection and front at 60 + feels airborne. I want to run a more...
  3. Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    I have a 54 plate XR400R which I love to bits and needs new tyres soon. In Milton Keynes where I live, there are hardly any BOATS and I don't often get the time to ride out to the boonies in Northants to get dirty, so most of my riding is now on the road. Squared-off knobblies on roundabouts in...

  15. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well then, where do i start? I wanted to lose my offroad cherry on the DRZ and i think its fair to say the cherry is now, erm, consumed. Possibly due to my dual sport tyres I found myself doing better on steep, loose boulders than on anything muddy, grassy or rutted. The first stack was on...
